Can Fixer-Uppers Work for First-Timers?

One common way that buyers often find a good value is by buying a fixer-upper, which is basically an existing home that needs some work. Sometimes these dwellings could just use some tender loving care, Other times, though, they need more serious rehabilitation.  So the question is: Are fixer-uppers a good idea for someone who’s new to homebuying and homeownership?

N.J.’s exit tax

N.J.’s exit tax: So baffling, even officials can’t explain it…

If you thought New Jersey’s jughandles were confusing, try wrapping your head around the state’s “exit tax.”

Short Sales and Foreclosures- Do I have a Choice?

Today, we would like to take a bit of your time, commenting on the current housing issues and economic situation we are all facing.

Unless you have been off the grid…you know what our nation is going through in terms of the financial and economic hardships. One of the major concerns most everyone shares, is the state of housing.

For many if not most, a home is the largest investment a family or an individual will make. The uncertainty of job stability and-or steady employment for some and the unfortunate reality for others who may have fallen behind in their mortgage payments, are all to real.

If you happen to be facing foreclosure, we may potentially be of help in negotiating a Short Sale with your lender. What is a Short Sale? Basically a Short Sale is when the lender agrees to accept and settle on a lower or lesser amount than the full balance of the mortgage you owe.

A Short Sale will be reported as a debt that was discharged, but not paid in full. This will impact your credit rating and credit score less than if you allowed your property to foreclose. A Foreclosure will have a much MORE negative effect on your credit rating/score, In fact it could be as much as a 200 point lower credit score.

Another advantage of trying to negotiate a Short Sale is that currently under Fannie Mae regulations, mortgage borrowers can be eligible for a purchase loan only 2 years after a short sale.  Compare this to waiting  5 years, after a foreclosure. Also, some lenders may be slightly more inclined to loan on a mortgage to someone who went through a short sale rather than a foreclosure. 

By opting for the Foreclosure alternative, a Short Sale, a potential borrower shows that they were proactive in trying to pay off the majority of their debt rather than simply giving up or walking away from their home.

Now we are not saying that a Short Sale is for everyone. We are not saying that everyone who is facing the possibility or are in the beginning stages of Foreclosure will qualify for a Short Sale, but our Exit 24/7 Realty | NJ REO Servicing team may be able to help you in preventing a Foreclosure.

Please give us a call, 908-754-0111 or send an email to the Exit 24/7 Realty | NJ REO Servicing Office. [njreoservicing@gmail.com] So we may discuss the possibility of a Short Sale today.
